Please welcome Catherine Winters!

Hello, fellow IABB Addicts! 

I'm Catherine Winters, author of the Imperial Vampires series and Madness, a literary novel. I am glued to my Facebook every Thursday for Confessions, and this week they've kindly featured my first novel, Black. 



Book Cover, Blurb, & More


Black:
Thirty-year-old redhead Josephine Berendt has everything under control. She's finally over her ex, Max Spencer; her third novel is about to hit the shelves; and she's living happily alone in a quiet Denver suburb. So what if her life is missing a little action? She gets all she needs by writing about vampires – and at least her furniture won't run away to Paris just to prove how much it doesn't love her.

600-year-old businessman Grant Black thinks he's just doing a favor for an old friend by keeping an eye on Josephine and her dangerously accurate storytelling. Keeping out of her life is no trouble at all – until Max Spencer shows up on her doorstep with a case of fangs and Grant is forced to meet Josephine in the fearless, foul-mouthed flesh.

Soon Josephine finds herself at the center of an undead incident of international proportions. Now every day is a test of how long she can balance her need for independence with her growing affection for a killer, and stay alive – or, at least, not dead.

Featuring some of the most famous and ruthless vampires from history and literature, BLACK interweaves traditional vampire canons with an entirely new race of vampires with its own laws and mores. Told in Josephine's thoroughly modern voice, the book is a witty, allusive tour of the vampire world's upper echelons and hubs of power.

Black is available just about everywhere; these are the most-used buy links:

#TeaserTuesday #AuthorToAuthor: My Mr. Manny by Jennifer Garcia


This week's #TeaserTuesday is from romance author Jennifer Garcia. She's just rereleased her books with new covers and they're back on Amazon!! Today we'll be featuring My Mr. Manny, a sweet, heartfelt romance with a hunk of a Manny (male nanny).

   photo MyMrManny_Amazon_iBooks_zpshznjanza.jpg 

  5ff9a-synopsis After getting swept up in nostalgia and losing herself in a quickly progressing romance, her fantasy falls apart. She is left to raise her precious little girl, Lucia, on her own. The demands of Mia’s work schedule and Lucia’s needs increase, and their lives become increasingly hectic. It is soon clear to Mia that she needs help. Luckily, her life-saving cousin saves the day and brings the mother and daughter a male nanny – their new “manny.” After losing his high-pressure job on Wall Street, Dominic Roberts wants to follow his dreams to have a family. He’s already one fiancĂ©e down, and there are no likely prospects for another. In order to find the family he so desperately wants, he finds himself getting into the manny business. Since he is fully qualified to provide childcare and is eager to leave New York City behind, his sister-in-law is able to land him a job in California working for his first client – the beautiful and intriguing Mia Balducci. Will Lucia like the new man in her mother's life? Will Mia? And will this new trio discover the happily ever after they all so desperately seek?

  3a742-excerpt "The first thing I saw were his eyes, which were a shade that transcended the most beautiful green things in the world: peacock feathers, limes, and lush leaves. They were small, slanted, and topped with thick dark eyebrows, which added a hint of mystery. His hair was dark black and slicked back. The bone structure of his face was strong, masculine, and angled. I couldn’t stop looking at him. He cleared his throat and put out his hand. “I’m Dominic.” I grabbed it in a firm shake, and I felt like I could see my future in that instant. Pictures of Dominic and me together in our old age flashed before my eyes. I felt comforted, as if I were wrapped in a warm coat of love. It was an amazing feeling. After much too long of a handshake, I pulled my hand back and said, “I am so sorry, Dominic. Please excuse my manners.” I waved him in with my right hand, while holding the door open with my left. “Come in. I’m Mia, by the way. Let’s have a seat in the living room to talk.”"      
Available for purchase on Amazon for Kindle and Paperback.

NEW RELEASE, SALE, & MY REVIEW : Come Undone by Kira Barker

From Goodreads:

Sometimes, the one thing you can’t have is the only thing you want. 

That is exactly how Erin Slater has been feeling for a while—on so many levels. Sidelined in her career as a trauma surgeon; no longer welcome in her father’s home; being just Simon’s submissive, not the love of his life. What started out as her journey of self-discovery is looking more bleak now that the honeymoon phase is over and reality has come crashing in. That things between Jack and Simon seem to be smoothing out is the high note of her life right now—and that is, by far, not enough. 

But she is willing to fight for what she wants—and she wants so much more. But when she gets it—will she be able to deal with it? 

Dive into this vivid erotic romance full of friendship, lust, love, bondage, dominance, and submission. Intended for mature audiences. 


Genre: BDSM m/m/f contemporary erotic romance

Length: 262 pages
Prize on Amazon: $2.99 (FREE with KU) 




~MY REVIEW~

 Up front full disclosure—Come Undone is every bit as much of a wild ride as its series' predecessors, but ends at the edge of one hell of a cliff. Lucky for us readers, Ms. Barker is a fast writer who has already provided an estimated release date of February 9, 2016 for the final book in the series. That’s not too long to wait. 

 It has been quite the journey for Erin, Simon, and Jack. All three are individuals with strong personalities, each thriving on being selfish at times. But hey, don’t we all? Watching them grow, as people and as they try to make their uncommon relationship work, has been intriguing. Ms. Barker could’ve easily let the sexual side of this trio take center stage in the telling of this story, but no, she delves into the realistic hardships and rewards pursuing such a life can have. Add in meddling neighbors and a budding D/s twist, what you have is a page-turning (or swiping) mind boggle. At times each of the three main characters seem be their own worst enemy. At least until the outside world tries to stick their noses in places they don’t belong and you get to see just how strong this threesome unit really is when they rally.

 I love how Barker tells it like it is, from butt plug farts to botched cupcakes to smoking hot sex scenes (both in and out of the playroom), Come Undone will leave your senses reeling. 

*I was provided an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review. Note to readers: this series should be read in order.

RELEASE TOUR: Starlight Wishes by M.E. Montgomery

SALE SALE SALE: The Complete Divine Trilogy is 50% off!



An erotic read meant for adults, The Divine Trilogy is not your typical romance. 

When you first meet Catherine and Jayden in To Serve is Divine, they aren’t looking for love at all. Catherine O’Chancey is a young submissive whose second Dom turned out to be an abusive fake. This is the story of her subsequent recovery and reentry into the BDSM lifestyle with the help of a new Dominant, Jayden Masterson. Come with me, and I’ll take you on the journey alongside Catherine and Jayden while their bond grows and deepens. It’ll be sexy and intense, but never fear, you get to be there to see the tender side of her new Dom as he helps her through her past tragedies. 

The Divine Trilogy offers a different view of the BDSM world. 

One that will enlighten readers and show them that those who live this Lifestyle often do so because it is a deep-seated need within their psyche, something that can't be ignored. And that need is okay because, when practiced properly, BDSM is all about being Safe, Sane, and Consensual. Find within the pages a sampling of the different dynamics which can occur amongst kinksters. Everything from hardcore pain sluts to docile “littles” who want to be pampered and coddled, but the important thing to remember is that everyone has a place of acceptance, without judgement, in this Lifestyle. 

Time and again reviewers have said they couldn’t put this book down . . . even when they don’t usually read this genre.

WHAT AMAZON REVIEWERS ARE SAYING:

"The relationship between these two dynamic characters is one I love to revisit time and again."

"This series is phenomenal!"

"The Divine Trilogy by Ms. Hargrave is one of my favorite BDSM series on the market."

Taken By The Huntsman:
Discarded and ignored by those around her for most of her life, Cassie is a lonely human woman struggling to find her place in the world and meaning in her life. Cadeyrn is the Erlking, the leader of the Wild Hunt, a hundreds of thousands of years old Fae who has always known his purpose. He has spent his entire long existence tracking the criminals of Fairie and punishing them for their crimes.
While hunting for the murderer of a child who has escaped to Earth Cadeyrn comes across Cassie and realizes that she is the one that the great mother goddess has designated as his soul mate. He kidnaps her and takes her to his fortress in Fairie to protect her from his many enemies. He knows she will be angry and that he'll have to work to earn her trust, but he finds his task to be even more challenging than he had thought it would be due to Cassie's difficulty in opening her heart.
Will Cadeyrn be able to convince Cassie that the bond between them is real and earn her love?

BUY on AMAZON (FREE with Kindle Unlimited)








Bound By The Summer Prince:
The Summer Court is in an uproar. The king has just been executed for unpardonable crimes, and the queen is prostrate with grief over his loss. This leaves the Summer kingdom bereft of true leadership; a problem which is compounded by the fact that the laws of Fairie require balance to be maintained by having a male and a female ruler for both Season Courts at all times. Uaine, the Summer prince, is the only one who can put things right, but he is without a mate. Knowing that he must take a bride quickly, for the sake of his people, even though he is struggling with his own feelings of pain and anger over his father's treachery, he goes for a walk in a forest near the palace to try to clear his head and determine how best to choose a female to rule beside him.
While walking Uaine discovers a human female running loose in Fairie, which is against the most basic tenets of Fae law. Furious at one more problem he must deal with, he takes her prisoner and locks her in the dungeon; only to discover later that she is his soul-mate. The magical bond between them means they are meant to be together forever, but humans can't feel the magic of Fairie. Will Uaine be able to win her heart and convince her that she can trust him to keep her safe from all the dangers of Fairie...including himself?
Roni is a human con woman and petty thief. Having run afoul of the local crime syndicate in the city where she is staying, she finds herself running for her life. Trouble is no stranger to her, but when she falls through a hole in a wall and finds herself in a world with carnivorous trees and rocks that eat people she realizes she may have found more of it than she can deal with. Rescued/arrested by the prince of the Summer Court, it doesn't take long for her to formulate a plan to use him to get herself home. Unfortunately for her, she soon finds that her heart, which she had thought long ago turned to stone, has begun to feel the love she has been playing at. Will she be able to overcome a lifetime of caution and allow herself to follow her heart? Can a criminal love a cop?








Intrigue In The Summer Court:
Jillian knows something bad is going to happen! She has been a loyal adviser to the throne and friend of the queen, Briallen, for thousands of years, and now Roni and Uaine's wedding and coronation are to take place in just a couple days. The Summer Court will have a new king and queen, who, it is hoped, can repair the damage and heal the schism the late king created.
But Jillian can't shake the feeling that trouble is brewing. Many of the Summer nobles aren't happy about the changes that are taking place in the Summer Court, and many of the other Fae just aren't too sure about having a human on the throne...even if she has been blessed by the goddess. When Angelica, the leader of the Pixies, comes to her with news of a plot to murder the prince and princess, Jillian's suspicions are confirmed. Will the two of them be able to unravel this conspiracy in time to save the royal couple? Or will prejudice prevail, and the hope for peace in Fairie be lost forever?
